Bouke van der Bijl


Hi, my name is Bouke van der Bijl. I’m a programmer and endlessly curious about the world. On this website I sometimes post about things I’m doing or something that’s on my mind.


In the past I worked at Cheddar Payments, Shopify and DigitalOcean. Right now I’m a Robotics Software Engineer at Terraform.


I really enjoy reading and keep track of everything I’m reading, if you have any book suggestions then please send them my way.

These are the categories of books I especially enjoy:


I have three apps on the iOS App Store:

I created a spaced repetition bot for Telegram, which I blogged about as well.
